Introduction

Postby SVG » Thu Apr 12, 2018 11:03 am

Hello gang. I just ordered a Rostock Max v3.2 printer kit. Looking forward to the creative possibilities.
I have no prior experience with 3D printing so I will most certainly have questions.

Welcome to the forums Mike. I look forward to seeing any pictures of your build process (Admittedly, the builds have been getting more streamlined, so there's less reason to take pictures of the process), and seeing what you produce. What are you interested in making with it, since some of us have application specific experience, and can help you get to printing what you want just a bit faster if we know what you're after?

Cheers, and happy printing.

Hi Xeno,
While I’ve been aware of 3D printing for a long time I never really gave it a second look. I’ve got a good friend who is a tech junkie and he was into it.
What made me make the leap is I am installing two systems in my car. One of which looks best with custom mounts. I spoke with a local shop that is
does installs and based on their lack of ideas and lack of a 3D printer I decided to just do the install myself. So I purchased the printer.
I will be printing the parts in ABS. I’ve read that printers with enclosures work well although I don’t think I’ll do an enclosure initially.
Will probably make prototypes with PLA.

Mike
